背景技术 Background technique

[0003] 本发明涉及用于确定并最终校正患者-呼吸机不同步的方法,例如辅助和包括患者触发(triggered)呼吸的呼吸机,包括但不限于PSV、AC、AMV以及双水平PS,与能够保护气道并表现出一些自主呼吸的努力的患者、包括支配性C0PD、限制性、混合性病状的患者以及需要辅助呼吸的普通病人之间的不同步。 [0003] The present invention relates to a patient and for determining a final correction - Method ventilator unsynchronized, and including a patient such as auxiliary trigger (triggered) respiratory ventilator, including but not limited to PSV, AC, AMV and bi-level PS, and It can protect the airway and show some spontaneous breathing effort of the patient, including not synchronized between the dominant C0PD, limiting, and in patients with mixed pathologies normal breathing patient in need of assistance.

[0004] 问题说明 [0004] Problem Description

[0005] 具有呼吸障碍或疾病的患者,特别是那些急性发作患者,可能没有足够呼吸力维持自主呼吸并且需要机械辅助呼吸。 [0005] patients with respiratory disorders or diseases, especially those patients with acute exacerbation, breathing force may not be enough to maintain spontaneous breathing and require mechanical ventilation. 对于具体情况,所选呼吸机的任务和类型是不同的,并且所述呼吸机在呼吸参与的程度上有所不同,从患者完全被动的控制性机械通气(CMV),到由患者主动触发机械呼吸后与患者分担吸气努力的辅助性呼吸形式。 For the particular case, and the type of the selected task is different from the ventilator, the ventilator and the respiration vary the extent of the participation from the patient completely passive controlled mechanical ventilation (CMV), mechanically triggered by the patient to the active assisted breathing after breathing in the form of inspiratory effort of the patient to share.

[0006] 辅助性呼吸形式按模式变化,如参数控制(流量/容积/压力),引入到自主呼吸的辅助量,和包括但不限于:辅助控制通气(AMV),同步间歇性指令通气(SIMV),以及压力支持通气(PSV)。 [0006] Auxiliary respiratory form by the mode change, such as parameter control (flow rate / volume / pressure), is introduced into the assist amount breathing spontaneously, and include, but are not limited to: the assist control ventilation (AMV), synchronized intermittent mandatory ventilation (the SIMV ), and pressure support ventilation (PSV). 治疗功效取决于可变压力/流量供给与患者的自主呼吸周期之间的同步性。 Therapeutic efficacy depends on synchronization between the variable pressure / flow supplied spontaneously breathing cycle of the patient. 对此至关重要的是呼吸机识别患者开始自主呼吸努力(触发机制)的能力,这通常通过患者达到正流量阈值或最小压力阈值来实现。 This is essential to identify patients with ventilator began breathing on his own ability effort (trigger), which is usually achieved positive flow reaches a threshold or minimum pressure threshold by the patient. 在患者不能达到这个触发阈值的情况下, 患者-呼吸机的同步性被打破并可能抵消任何采用呼吸机预计的益处。 In the case of patients who can not achieve this trigger threshold, the patient - ventilator synchrony is broken and may offset any benefits of adopting the ventilator expected. 这种现象被称作无效触发并在多种治疗中观察到,但在COPD中是最常见的。 This phenomenon is called invalid trigger and observed in a variety of treatments, but in COPD is the most common. (“当收到高水平压力支持或辅助控制呼吸时,患者自主吸气努力的四分之一到三分之一可能不能触发呼吸机。” Tobin 等(Tobin M,Jubran A,Laghi F. Patient-VentilatorInteraction. American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine. 163 :1059-1063,2001.)). ( "When you receive a high level of pressure support or assist breathing control, one-quarter to one-third of patients with spontaneous inspiration effort may not trigger the ventilator." Tobin et (Tobin M, Jubran A, Laghi F. Patient . -VentilatorInteraction American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine 163:. 1059-1063,2001))..

[0007] 这种对抗的主要原因是呼气流量受限、肺的动态充气过度和伴随内源性PEEP。 Mainly [0007] This is against the expiratory flow limitation, and dynamic lung hyperinflation accompanying endogenous PEEP. 动态肺充气过度可源自闭合气道后方的气流阻塞,机械与神经系统呼气的不匹配,或上述的结合。 Dynamic hyperinflation can be closed from the rear of the airflow obstruction Aikido, mechanical exhalation nervous system do not match, or a combination of the above. 在COPD中对此进行了深入研究,并在其他病理中进行了少量程度、但在各种患者中进行了观察。 In COPD in this in-depth study, and a small number of degrees in other pathologies, but were observed in a variety of patients. 机理如下:1)C0PD中气道阻塞是由如气道分泌物、支气道痉挛和粘膜水肿等病理效应引起的。 Mechanism is as follows: 1) C0PD airway obstruction, such as by cytopathic effect airway secretions, bronchial spasm and mucosal edema caused. 在所有情形中气流阻力增加,并迫使肌肉补充辅助导致气道的动态压缩的呼气。 Increasing the air flow resistance in all cases, result in the auxiliary and supplementary muscular force dynamic airway compression exhalation. 2)同样在肺气肿的情况下,呼吸系统的顺应性(compliance)可能增加。 2) Also in the case of emphysema, respiratory system compliance (Compliance) may be increased. 肺的排空率变得不良,且有效的正常呼气工作循环时间(由呼吸负反馈控制确定)不足以引发完全机械呼气。 Emptying of the lungs becomes poor and the effective duty cycle of normal expiration time (determined by the negative feedback control breath) is not sufficient to induce complete mechanical breath. 幻患者呼吸受限发生在低肺容积的情况下,并且因此促使气道闭合以及气流阻塞,特别是如果呼吸率高。 Magic patient breathing restricted occur at low lung volumes, and thus causing airflow obstruction and airway closure, especially if the respiratory rate. 在所有情况中,呼气末肺容量(EELV)不允许呼吸系统回到弹性平衡容量,且外来气体被限制在肺中,即动态肺充气过度。 In all cases, the end-expiratory lung volume (the EELV) does not allow the elastic return to equilibrium capacity respiratory system, and the foreign gas is restricted in the lungs, i.e. the dynamic hyperinflation.

[0008] EELV的动态增加具有在自主呼吸的患者中阻止吸气的几种影响。 [0008] EELV increased dynamic impact having several stop the intake of the patient's spontaneous breathing. [0009] 通常,在任意时刻驱动气流方向的肺泡压力的动态值Palv,在呼气过程中保持为正,并且在呼气末衰减到相对于大气的零弹性反冲压力,即Palv = ,此处Ps是吸气末的静态压力平稳状态。 [0009] Generally, the dynamic driving direction of gas flow value Palv alveolar pressure is maintained at any time during expiration is positive and decay to zero in the end-expiratory pressure with respect to the elastic recoil of the atmosphere, i.e. = Palv, this Ps is the static pressure at the end of the inspiratory plateau. 然而在存在动态肺充气过度的情况下,呼吸系统的平衡弹性反冲不是在呼气末获得且Palv保持为正(内源性呼气末正压或PEEPi)。 However, in the case where there is excessive dynamic lung inflated, the elastic recoil of the respiratory system equilibrium is not obtained at the end of expiration and Palv remains positive (intrinsic PEEP or PEEPi). 为开始吸入气流,肺泡压力必须相对于大气为负,所以患者的呼吸肌在产生吸入气流之前必须首先克服这个剩余的Palv或PEEPi。 To start suction airflow, alveolar pressure must be negative relative to atmosphere, so that the patient's respiratory muscles must overcome this residual Palv or suction flow generated before PEEPi. 在这个背景下,PEEPi作为吸气负荷。 In this context, PEEPi air intake load.

[0010] 通过使呼吸肌纤维从最优长度变化到较短操作长度并改变横隔膜和胸腔间的几何排列,肺容量的动态增加也可降低呼吸肌的压力产生能力。 [0010] Respiratory muscle fibers by causing a change from operation to a shorter optimum length and changes the length of the geometric arrangement between the diaphragm and chest, a dynamic increase in lung volume can be reduced respiratory muscle pressure generating capability.

[0011] 容量的增加也可使肺的工作转换到更高的、在呼气末的容量-压力曲线的非线性、顺应性更小的区域。 Increase in [0011] lung capacity also allows operation of the converter to a higher capacity at the end of exhalation - linear pressure curve, smaller compliance area. 由于此处肺的硬度相对增加,需要更大的肌肉努力和吸气动力使肺部扩张。 Due to the relative increase in the hardness of the lung here, the need for greater inspiratory muscle effort and force the lungs to expand.

[0012] 为针对上述因素,呼吸肌遭受疲劳和无力,最终导致肺不能进气和排气。 [0012] The response to these factors, the subject to respiratory muscle fatigue and weakness, eventually leading to the lungs can not intake and exhaust. 结果,当患者做吸气努力时达到微小的气流或压力变化,并且这些吸气努力可能不能达到触发阈值,因此完全没有被呼吸机检测到。 As a result, when patients do achieve inspiratory effort minor changes in airflow or pressure, inspiratory and these efforts may not reach the trigger threshold, and therefore there is no ventilator is detected.

[0013] 图1表示在PSV模式(气流触发)下理想工作的呼吸机。 [0013] FIG. 1 shows the PSV mode (airflow trigger) under ideal operating the ventilator. 表示出两个完整的呼吸周期。 Shows two complete respiratory cycles. 气道开口处的气流和压力(PAO)是呼吸机可利用的信号,胸膜压力(PPL)是通过反转表示患者吸气努力开始的外部参照[1]。 Airway pressure and gas flow opening (PAO) is a signal available ventilator, pleural pressure (PPL) is represented by inverting the exterior of the patient inspiratory effort begins reference [1]. 此事件大约300毫秒后,患者获得触发呼吸机所需气流[2]且IPAP随后被供给[3]。 This event is about 300 ms, the patient triggers the ventilator to obtain a desired stream [2] and subsequently supplied IPAP [3].

[0014] 相反,图2说明患者努力没有被呼吸机检测到的结果。 [0014] In contrast, Figure 2 illustrates a patient effort, the ventilator is not detected result. 数据序列PPL中观察到四个患者吸气努力,按照前面的说明只有第一个努力被呼吸机支持[1]。 PPL data sequence observed in four patients inspiratory effort, as previously noted, only the first ventilator support effort is [1]. 每个随后的吸气努力[2]均产生相应的气流上升,然而每种情况都没有达到触发阈值[3]并且结果是呼吸机仍保持在EPAP下。 Each subsequent inspiratory effort [2] are generated corresponding increase in airflow, but in each case there is no trigger threshold [3] and as a result the ventilator remains in EPAP.

[0015] 目前没有在PV相互作用期间识别并记录患者的无效努力的发生的自动测量学。 [0015] No automatic identification and recording surveying invalid patient effort occurs during the PV interaction. Varon等(Varon J,et al. Prevalence of patientventilator asynchrony in critically ill patients [abstract]. Chest. 106 :141S, 1994)将“对抗指数(index) ”表示为不能触发的监测到的呼吸的百分比,但并没有对实现这个的装置做进一步说明。 Varon et (Varon J, et al Prevalence of patientventilator asynchrony in critically ill patients [abstract] Chest 106:... 141S, 1994) the "against the index (index)" is expressed as the monitoring can not be triggered to the percentage of breathing, but and no means to achieve this further explanation. 作者指出指数随所施加的PEEP变化,可通过分别减小PSV或AC模式中的压力支持或潮气量供给来消除触发对抗,并指出患者的清醒状态适当地影响指数,即睡眠中比清醒时指数低。 The authors note that index with PEEP changes applied to support or tidal volume supplied by the pressure respectively reduced PSV or AC mode to eliminate the trigger confrontation and pointed awake patient appropriately influence index that sleep than when awake index lower . 这些观察报告意味着给统计参考辅助性呼吸机的对抗的设备增加显著价值,此外还建议响应动作可用于减轻对抗并使呼吸的负荷最小化。 These observations imply a reference device against the auxiliary ventilator add significant value to the statistics, also recommended response action can be used to reduce the load against and breathing is minimized.

[0016] 在完美的患者-呼吸机相互作用中,呼吸机可与源自中央神经系统的电脉冲同步触发。 [0016] Patients in perfect - interaction ventilator, the ventilator can be synchronized with the electric pulse from the trigger central nervous system. 虽然这对人类在事实上和伦理上来说可能是不能实现的,以与最接近事件的时间检测患者的吸气努力是实现同步的患者-呼吸机同步性的终极目标。 While this is in fact the human and ethical terms may not be achieved, the closest event with a time of detection of inspiratory effort the patient is that the patient achieve synchronization - ventilator synchrony ultimate goal.

[0017] 进一步说明表明胸膜压力支持的触发压力可改进PV同步性,并且图1和2中的数据支持这个理论。 [0017] Further note indicates pleural pressure support triggering pressure PV synchronization can be improved, and the data in Figures 1 and 2 support the theory. 然而,这种测量方法源自插入食管的球囊扩张导管,并且这种水平的侵入力对ICU外的应用,如家用,是不理想的也是不可能的。 However, this method of measurement from an esophageal balloon dilatation catheter, and this level of invasiveness applied outside the ICU, such as home, is undesirable is impossible.

[0018] 用以协助改进呼吸机触发的精确检测患者努力的其他方法包括使用外部传感器(USP 6758216,USP 6015388)和增加呼吸机内部的触发灵敏度算法(USP 6626175)。 [0018] Other methods used to help improve patient triggered by the ventilator accurately detect efforts include the use of an external sensor (USP 6758216, USP 6015388) and the increase of the internal ventilator triggering sensitivity algorithm (USP 6626175).

[0019] 上述方法的目的不在于解决无效努力的主要原因,即患者肺部存在的动态肺充气过度和内源性PEEP。 Objective [0019] The method described above does not solve the main reason for the effort is invalid, i.e., the presence of the patient's lungs and dynamic lung hyperinflation intrinsic PEEP.

[0020] 一种更有意义的解决方案是消除PEEPi作用并减少呼吸功能在开始处的衰退。 [0020] in a more meaningful solution is to eliminate and reduce respiratory function PEEPi effect at the beginning of the recession. 通常通过呼吸机增加外部PEEP以抵消PEEPi取得一些成功,因而在呼气末时,嘴的压力和气泡压力之间存在平衡。 Generally increases the PEEP ventilator external PEEPi to counteract some success, and thus at the end of expiration, a pressure equilibrium exists between the nozzle and bubble pressure. 最终,通过减小触发呼吸机所需的胸膜压力(由呼吸肌努力产生) 的反转幅度改进患者-呼吸机相互作用。 Finally, by reducing the required to trigger the ventilator pleural pressure (the respiratory muscle effort generated by) the amplitude inversion improve patient - ventilator interaction. PEEP还通过补充前面压扁的、不通风的、充满的空间,增加功能性余气量和呼吸顺应性(在低容量),提高总体灌注(perfusion)和1^02。 PEEP also supplemented through the front flattened, non-ventilated, full of space, functional residual capacity and increased respiratory compliance (low capacity), increase the overall perfusion (perfusion) and 1 ^ 02.

[0021] 因此,用外部施加PEEP抵消PEEPi减小了呼吸负荷并促进了呼吸机有效触发。 [0021] Thus, applying PEEP offset PEEPi respiratory load decreases and promotes the effective triggering external ventilator. 然而,确定施加的PEEP的值存在困难的几个原因是: However, determining the value of the applied PEEP existence is difficult for several reasons:

[0022] 1)太多将会导致动态肺充气过度加剧(及相关问题),甚至可能在某些患者中引发气压性创伤。 [0022] 1) too much will lead to increased dynamic lung hyperinflation (and related issues), and may even cause barotrauma in some patients. 示出了理想值高度依赖于PEEPi的现有水平。 Shows the ideal value highly dependent on the current level of PEEPi.

[0023] 2)在没有完全机械通气(患者被动参与)时,PEEPi的静态测量是不可能的,并且由于来自吸气和呼气肌群的压力作用,动态测量被估计过高。 [0023] 2) In the absence of fully mechanical ventilation (patient passive participation), static PEEPi measurement is impossible, and since the pressure from the inspiratory and expiratory muscles dynamic measurement overestimated.

[0024] 3)即使可获得绝对量度,呼吸和呼吸的PEEPi是高度变化的,因此外部PEEP的一次性测量是不够的。 [0024] 3) can be obtained even if the absolute measure of breathing and PEEPi is highly variable, thus measuring a disposable external PEEP it is not enough. 优选连续PEEPi测量和伺服调节PEEP的供给。 PEEPi measured preferably continuously supplied and servo adjustment of PEEP.

[0025] 解决第一个问题的第一步骤是推导出PEEP与PEEPi的合适比率,以避免进一步的动态肺充气过度。 [0025] a first step of solving the first problem is to derive a suitable ratio of PEEP and PEEPi, to avoid further dynamic hyperinflation. 已经确定附加的PEEP对肺排空率以及动态肺充气过度的作用不大,直到其超过临界值PCTit。 PEEP has been determined that additional lung emptying and dynamic lung hyperinflation little effect until it exceeds a critical value PCTit. 然而,需要进一步研究测量的PEEPi和Prait之间的精确关系,如果有关系的话。 However, further research is needed to measure the precise relationship between PEEPi and Prait, if a relationship of words. 同样地,Prait是PEEPi的什么比例是有效并且无害(75%至90%之间变化),以及存在这是否与PEEPi的动态或静态值相关的临床讨论。 Similarly, Prait what proportion PEEPi is effective and harmless (varying between 75-90%), and the presence of this clinical discussion is relevant to the dynamic or static value of the PEEPi. 此外,在动态条件下测量作为动态肺充气过度结果的PEEPi的可靠且简单的方法仍有待开发。 Further, the measurement under dynamic conditions in a reliable and simple method of PEEPi dynamic lung hyperinflation as a result of the yet to be developed. 因此,最清楚的方案是视对问题比现在更实际的理解和评估而定。 Therefore, the scheme is the clearest view of the problem than it is now more realistic understanding and evaluation may be.

[0026] 美国专利6,588,422说明了在对呼吸衰竭患者进行呼吸支持过程中抵消PEEPi的方法和装置。 [0026] U.S. Patent No. 6,588,422 describes a method and apparatus for canceling PEEPi respiratory failure in a patient during respiratory support. 该发明旨在将动态地抵消PEEPi的可调PEEP供给到患者。 The invention is intended to cancel PEEPi dynamically adjustable PEEP supplied to the patient. 它通过类似于测量动态气道压缩程度解决了实时且非侵入性地测量PEEPi的问题。 Dynamic airway compression It solves the problem of real-time and non-invasively measuring the PEEPi by similar measurement. 说明实现这个测量的两个主要方法:1)利用受迫振动技术(FOT)设定吸气传导率与呼气传导率的比率,和2)检查呼出气流对时间的曲线的形状。 The two main methods described measurements achieved: 1) the use of a ratio of forced oscillation technique (the FOT) set inspiratory and expiratory conductance conductivity, and 2) Check the expiratory flow versus time of the shape.

[0027] 然而,实际上这些方案存在困难。 [0027] However, in practice these programs difficult. 两种技术均采用了在实际中可能受限的纯粹且理想化的理论基础。 Both techniques are used in a pure and idealized theoretical basis in practice it may be limited. 此外,线性的FOT需求使利用小幅振动变得必要,这可能忽略潮气呼吸过程中出现的其他重要非线性特性。 In addition, the use of linear FOT needs a slight vibration becomes necessary, which may ignore other important non-linear characteristics that occur during tidal breathing. 同样在临床方案、数据采集和分析中所需的方法精确性,使其在无人监管的环境,即家用通气中的可应用性更小。 The method of the same accuracy required in clinical protocols, data acquisition and analysis, so the unsupervised environment, i.e., the home ventilation less applicability.

[0028] 因此,产生了呼吸技术中能改进或消除上述缺陷中一项或多项方法的需要。 [0028] Thus, a breathing technique or eliminate the aforementioned drawbacks can be improved according to one or more required methods.

发明内容 SUMMARY

[0029] 本发明的一方面涉及用于检测未觉察的触发信号,以及因此在患者-呼吸机(辅助性的)相互作用过程中未被识别的患者努力的算法。 [0029] In one aspect of the present invention, the trigger signal detection is not perceived, and thus relates to a patient - Algorithm patient ventilator interaction process (supplementary) unrecognized effort. 该算法的一个功能是当在供给的吸气辅助之外(压力支持或容量控制)发生气流信号显著扰动(表示患者努力)时进行记录。 When recording is a function of the algorithm occurs when the intake airflow signal supplied outside the auxiliary (or pressure support volume control) a significant disturbance (represented by patient effort). 这个算法的结果是这些事件以时间为参考的标记,其可用作患者-呼吸机同步性以及因此的治疗成功的统计量度。 The result of the algorithm is that these events mark time as a reference, it can be used as a patient - ventilator synchrony and therefore the statistical measure of treatment success.

[0030] 另一方面,可能是最终目标,是使患者-呼吸机对抗最小化并减小呼吸负荷,可相应地通过采取措施使指数最小化(手动地或伺服调节的)_通过改变呼吸机参数(增加PEEP,减小压力支持,或减少潮气量供给),和/或环境因素(患者状态,用药)。 [0030] On the other hand, it may be the ultimate goal is to make the patient - ventilator breathing against minimize and reduce the load, can take measures accordingly index by minimizing (or manually adjustable servo) by changing the ventilator _ parameters (the PEEP increases, pressure support is reduced, or reduce the amount of moisture supplied), and / or environmental factors (state of the patient, medication).

[0031] 本发明的另一方面是用作标定在患者-辅助呼吸机相互作用中发生的未被呼吸机检测到的患者吸气努力的量度。 [0031] Another aspect of the present invention is used as a calibration in a patient - a measure of patient is not breathing occurs with assisted breathing machine interaction detected inspiratory effort.

[0032] 本发明的又一方面是提供作为呼吸机供给的呼吸和检测到的无效患者努力的总和的真实的患者呼吸比率的指示。 [0032] Yet another aspect of the present invention is to provide a ventilator supplying respiratory and respiratory rate detecting true indication of invalid patient to patient effort sum.

[0033] 本发明的再一方面是通过呼吸机的伺服调节使无效患者吸气努力最小化,通过以下一项或更多来实现: [0033] another aspect of the present invention is obtained by adjusting the servo-ventilator voiding patient inspiratory effort to minimize, or more is achieved by the following:

[0034] 1)利用统计参考量度,伺服调节通过呼吸机的外部PEEP供给,例如在一连串无效触发后,递增地加大所施加的PEEP以使指数最小化。 [0034] 1) a statistical measure of a reference, servo adjustment external PEEP supplied by the ventilator, for example, after a series of invalid trigger incrementally increase applied PEEP so that the index is minimized.

[0035] 2)利用统计参考量度,伺服调节通过呼吸机的潮气容量供给,例如在一连串无效触发后,逐渐地减少潮气容量供给以使指数最小化。 [0035] 2) using a statistical measure of a reference, servo adjustment by supplying the moisture capacity of the ventilator, for example, after a series of invalid trigger tidal volume of supply is gradually reduced so that the index is minimized.

具体实施方式 Detailed ways

[0060] 虽然以下实施例按过程顺序说明,应该理解的是,该过程可通过非线性、非顺序或非阶段过程实现,或可改变过程的顺序。 [0060] Although the process sequence according to the following described embodiments, it should be understood that the process can be linear, non-sequential or non-stage process is achieved by, or sequential processes may be changed. 同样地,尽管下文描述整个过程,发明的某些方面可能仅涉及到这个过程的子集。 Similarly, although the process described below, certain aspects of the invention may relate only to a subset of the process.

[0061] 本发明的一方面指向改进患者-呼吸机同步性,消除对外部传感器的需求,测量内源性PEEP (或通过类推(analogy)),或修改/复杂化呼吸机内部触发灵敏度算法的方法。 [0061] In one aspect of the present invention is directed to improve patient - ventilator synchrony, eliminating the need for external sensors, measuring the PEEP endogenous (or by analogy (Analogy)) internal trigger sensitivity algorithm, or modify / complicate ventilator method. 相反地,它识别在气流或压力信号中表现为特殊特征的未支持的患者努力,对它们的发生标定标记,并可选地将输出用作误差函数,通过调整多种呼吸机/环境参数迫使该误差函数随时间最小化。 Rather, it recognizes a special performance feature is not supported in the gas flow or pressure signal of patient effort, calibration markers their occurrence, and optionally the error function as the output, by adjusting various environmental parameters forcing ventilator / the error function over time is minimized. 这些调整或者是手动或者是伺服调节的,可能涉及PEEP和/或潮气量供给(为抵消PEEP且减小动态肺充气过度),以及触发灵敏度。 These adjustments either manually or servo adjustment may involve PEEP and / or moisture supply amount (PEEP to counteract and reduce dynamic hyperinflation), and a trigger sensitivity.

[0062] 在一个实施例中,提供了用于检测对应于患者努力的未觉察的触发的算法,该算法没有用到直接努力传感器的益处。 [0062] In one embodiment, there is provided a method for detecting triggering of patient effort corresponding to Unaware, the algorithm does not use the benefits of direct effort sensor. 只是处理患者气流和气道压力来确定这个。 Patients treated only airflow and airway pressure to determine this.

[0063] 如图2所示,未被支持的努力在气流信号[4]中伴随显著并且独特的扰动,这是通常现象。 [0063] 2 efforts, significant unsupported along the airflow signal [4] and a unique perturbation, which is usually a phenomenon. 这些扰动: These disturbances:

[0064] 在呼吸机运转后的呼气过程中和下次触发之前发生,即缺少成功的吸气辅助; [0064] and before the next trigger occurs during exhalation after ventilator operation, namely the lack of success of the suction assisted;

[0065] 不必要被正向气流表征,而是被迟延反向气流表征。 [0065] The gas stream is positively characterized unnecessary, but is characterized by delayed reverse flow.

[0066] 其“显著”在于它们与噪音或其他如分泌或心原性振动等低振幅现象相区别。 [0066] which is "significant" in that they are distinguished from low amplitude noise or other phenomena such as secretion or cardiogenic vibration.

[0067] 其“独特”在于它们与如吞咽或咳嗽等其他生理现象所引起的显著扰动相区别。 [0067] which is "unique" in that they are distinguished from significant disturbance or swallowing and cough caused by other physiological phenomena.

[0068] 气流信号的一些特征可被识别作为单独无效努力的特征,如图3所示。 [0068] Some of the features of the airflow signal may be identified as a separate feature ineffective efforts, as shown in FIG. 顺次连接它们形成特征集合。 Sequentially connecting them form a feature set. 在连续的呼气过程中,并且在到达呼出气流的峰值后,气流分布图向零加速。 In a continuous exhalation, and after reaching the peak expiratory flow, flow distribution to zero acceleration FIG. 这个趋势对于正常对象可能是指数的,或对于呼出气流受限对象是接近线性衰减的。 This trend may be the index for the normal subject, or for exhaled airflow limitation is nearly linear attenuation objects. 当在呼气曲线上出现无效努力时,在对应于肌肉努力开始的反气流中可能存在或不存在短的、迅速的(相对于呼气基线)减速,但总是存在局部极大值[1]和用局部极小值[3]间断的短的、回到呼出气流分布图基线的相当迅速的倾斜[2]。 When the invalid curve expiratory efforts, there may be short or absent, rapidly (with respect to the expiratory baseline) reduction in the anti-stream corresponding to the beginning of the muscle effort, there is always the local maxima [1 ] and a local minimum [3] intermittent short, partial expiratory flow back Bu Tuji fairly rapid inclined line [2].

[0069] 本发明的一方面涉及对呼气气流信号的识别,以及属于无效努力的这部分信号的显著和独特的扰动。 [0069] In one aspect the present invention relates to the identification of expiratory flow signal, and this part of the effort signal is not valid and unique significant disturbance. 这涉及至少对局部最大值的识别,以及另外的连续倾斜。 This involves at least the identification of local maxima, and further continuously inclined. 此外,本发明的一方面对呼气过程中作用于气流信号的扰动的通用分类器进行概述,所述扰动与生理原因有关,包括吞咽、咳嗽和心原性振动,因此无效努力可被更有效地区分开。 Furthermore, an aspect of the present invention applied to the gas flow during exhalation disturbance signal classifier general overview of the disturbance and related physiological reasons, involve swallowing, coughing, and cardiogenic oscillation, thus ineffective efforts can be more effectively separate areas. 参看图4的高级的流程图说明。 Referring to the flowchart of FIG advanced 4.

[0070] 本发明的一个实施例用呼气过程中发生的显著局部最大值检测无效努力,其可按以下方法实施。 [0070] An embodiment of the present invention, with significant local maximum detection occurs during exhalation ineffective efforts, which according to the following methods. 图5说明了这个过程的流程图。 5 illustrates a flow chart of this process.

[0071] 初步信号处理包括以下步骤: [0071] Initial signal processing comprising the steps of:

[0072] 1)采用包括数据采集系统和内存的记录仪记录两个来自用呼吸机的病人的信号, 该记录仪可以是呼吸机自身。 [0072] 1) comprises a memory and a data acquisition system recorder records two signals of the patient from the ventilator, the ventilator may be a recorder itself. 这些信号是嘴的气流(Q)和气道压力(P)。 These signals are nozzle flow (Q) and airway pressure (P).

[0073] 2)气流和气道压力信号通过平滑/噪音滤波器以使噪音最小化。 [0073] 2) the gas flow through the airway pressure signal smoothing / noise filter to minimize noise. 这样的例子是具有使相位滞后最小化且截止频率为1赫兹的低阶Butterworth低通滤波器。 Such example is having the phase lag is minimized and a cutoff frequency of 1 Hz low-order Butterworth low-pass filter.

[0074]幻将无意遗漏(leak)补偿算法应用到气流信号,如美国专利6,152,129 (Berthon-Jones)所述。 [0074] The inadvertent omission phantom (Leak) compensation algorithm is applied to airflow signal, as described in U.S. Patent No. 6,152,129 (Berthon-Jones).

[0078] 1)呼气阶段的指示信号。 Instruction signal [0078] 1) exhalation phase. 这可通过采用任意数量的方法来实现,例如基于气流的极性对呼气阶段进行分类(图6(a)),或选择性地基于用触发和运转事件所确定的治疗供给(therapy delivery)的状态对呼气阶段进行分类(图6 (b)),或针对相变阈值测定压力信号(图6 (c))(如((IPAP或最大压力)-(EPAP或最小压力))*50 %,取决于辅助的类型)。 This may be achieved by using any number of methods, for example, based on the polarity of the expiratory phase stream classification (FIG. 6 (a)), or selectively supplying a trigger-based treatment and operation on the determined event (therapy delivery) a state of the expiratory phase classification (FIG. 6 (b)), or measuring the pressure signal (FIG. 6 (c)) for a phase change threshold value (e.g., ((the IPAP or maximum pressure) - (EPAP or minimum pressure)) * 50 %, depending on the type of assistance). 总的控制信号,Crap,在呼气过程中是TRUE。 The total control signal, Crap, during exhalation is TRUE.

[0079] 2)标记表明一次导数气流信号中的零交叉。 [0079] 2) labeled to indicate that a derivative airflow signal zero crossings. 当Q' = 0时,总控制信号Cq,是TRUE,并标识气流信号的变形(inflection)。 When Q '= 0, the overall control signal Cq, is TRUE, the identification and modification (inflection) of the airflow signal.

[0080] 3)控制信号确保a)由步骤2标识的变形是最大的;b)变形具有够格视为特征的显著上升,与噪音或心原性气流相区别。 [0080] 3) a control signal to ensure that a) the maximum deformation is identified in step 2; b) the deformation characteristics considered qualified having increased significantly distinguished from noise or cardiogenic airflow. 例如,这可通过相对于中间负值(impartial negative)、非零阈值α测试二次导数气流信号来实现,但不限于它自己的标准差或百分比,定义为: For example, this may be a negative value with respect to the intermediate (impartial negative), the threshold value α nonzero second derivative test stream signal is achieved by, but not limited to its own standard deviation or percentage, is defined as:

[0082] 当小于-α时,总控制信号Cq,,是TRUE。 [0082] When less than -α, the overall control signal Cq ,, is TRUE.

[0083] 上述控制信号被与(AND)以导出总指数,此处对于每个检测到的无效努力INDEX =TRUE。 [0083] and the control signal (AND) to derive the overall index, where for each detected invalid efforts INDEX = TRUE.

[0084] 本发明的另一个实施例检测无效努力作为呼气过程中的特征集合,并且该特征集合包括显著的局部最大值和连续倾斜,还有对于生理原因独特的参数。 Another [0084] embodiment of the present invention as an effort to detect invalid during exhalation feature set, and the feature set includes significant local maximum and continuously inclined, there is a unique parameter for physiological reasons embodiment. 它可按以下方式实施。 It may be implemented in the following manner.

[0085] 初步信号处理包括以下步骤: [0085] Initial signal processing comprising the steps of:

[0086] 1)采用包括数据采集系统和内存的记录仪记录两个来自用呼吸机的病人的信号, 该记录仪可以是呼吸机自身。 [0086] 1) comprises a memory and a data acquisition system recorder records two signals of the patient from the ventilator, the ventilator may be a recorder itself. 这些信号是嘴的气流(Q)和气道压力(P)。 These signals are nozzle flow (Q) and airway pressure (P).

[0087] 2)气流和气道压力信号通过平滑/噪音滤波器以使噪音最小化。 [0087] 2) the gas flow through the airway pressure signal smoothing / noise filter to minimize noise. 这样的例子是具有使相位滞后最小化且截止频率为1赫兹的低阶Butterworth低通滤波器。 Such example is having the phase lag is minimized and a cutoff frequency of 1 Hz low-order Butterworth low-pass filter.

[0088] 3)将无意遗漏补偿算法应用到气流信号,如美国专利6,152,129 (Berthon-Jones) 所述。 [0088] 3) The inadvertent omission compensation algorithm applied to airflow signal, as described in U.S. Patent No. 6,152,129 (Berthon-Jones).

[0089] 4)计算气流信号的一次导数(Q' )。 [0089] 4) calculating a derivative signal of the air flow (Q ').

[0090] 5)计算气流信号的二次导数⑴”)。 The second derivative of [0090] 5) Calculate the airflow signal ⑴ ").

[0091] 确定呼气阶段的指示信号。 [0091] determining a signal indicative of the exhalation phase. 这可通过采用任意数量的方法来实现,例如基于气流的极性对呼气阶段进行分类(图6(a)),或选择性地基于用触发和运转事件所确定的治疗供给的状态对呼气阶段进行分类(图6(b)),或针对相变阈值测定压力信号(图6(c))(如((IPAP或最大压力)-(EPAP或最小压力))*50 %,取决于辅助的类型)。 This may be achieved by using any number of methods, for example, classifying the expiratory phase stream based on the polarity (FIG. 6 (a)), or selectively based on the status and operation of a trigger event is supplied to the determined call treatment gas phase classification (FIG. 6 (b)), or measuring the pressure signal (FIG. 6 (c)) for a phase change threshold value (e.g., ((the IPAP or maximum pressure) - (EPAP or minimum pressure)) * 50%, depending assisted type). 总的控制信号,Crap, 在呼气过程中可能是TRUE。 The total control signal, Crap, during exhalation may be TRUE.

[0092] 下文对组合扰动特征集合检测和模式分类器进行描述并且表示在图5中。 [0092] Hereinafter combination disturbance detection feature set and pattern classification is described and shown in FIG. 5. 参考特征已经描述并在图3中示出。 It features already described with reference to and illustrated in FIG.

[0093] 检查呼气阶段控制信号是否为TRUE,来确定是否对气流进行扰动检测处理[1]。 [0093] Check whether the expiratory phase control signal is TRUE, the gas stream to determine whether the disturbance detection process [1].

[0094] 以下状态变量和计时被初始化[2]: [0094] The following state variables are initialized and timing [2]:

[0095] 1. max-detected-表明是否出现局部极大值 [0095] 1. max-detected- indicates whether the local maximum value appears

[0096] 2. Tie-从最近的局部极大值发生,即患者努力开始衰减所经过的时间 [0096] 2. Tie- occur from the nearest local maxima, namely patient effort begins to decay time elapsed

[0097] 3. potential_swallow-表明患者是否可能正在吞咽 [0097] 3. potential_swallow- indicate whether the patient might swallow

[0098] 4. Tsa-从可能的吞咽发生所经过的时间 [0098] 4. Tsa- swallowing may occur from time elapsed

[0099] 5. dec-detected-表明是否已经检测到显著的倾斜 [0099] 5. dec-detected- indicate whether a significant inclination detected

[0100] 峰值呼气气流(PEF)在连续呼气过程中出现得早,并且在进行扰动检测[3]之前通过以下公式计算: [0100] Peak expiratory flow (PEF) occurs early in a continuous exhalation, and the disturbance detection is performed [3] prior to calculating the following formula:

[0101]如果(Qi > Qh),那么PEF = Qi [0101] If (Qi> Qh), then PEF = Qi

[0081] STD(F) = :F[0102] 此处i表示取样次序(sequence)。 [0081] STD (F) =: F [0102] where i represents the sampling order (sequence). 在PEF超过大约ZOOLmirT1的阈值时,认为出现咳嗽且PEF被赋空值。 When PEF exceeds the threshold value of about ZOOLmirT1 that cough and PEF is assigned a null value.

[0103] 优先检测局部极大值特征[4],并通过一次导数上下降的零交叉或完全零斜率的出现确定: [0103] Priority detected local maxima characteristic [4], and is determined by the lowering of the zero crossing of the first derivative occurs entirely or zero slope:

[0104] Q,i < 0 且Q,Η > 0,或Q,i = 0 [0104] Q, i <0 and Q, Η> 0, or Q, i = 0

[0105] 基于检测到的局部极大值,状态变量用max-detected表示且T11重置。 [0105] Based on the detected local maxima, and T11 indicates the reset state variable with max-detected. 气流的局部最大值被存储为变量A [5]。 Local airflow is stored as the maximum value of the variable A [5].

[0106] 检验A的近零值以识别可能的吞咽动作[6]。 Near-zero value [0106] A test to identify potential swallow [6]. 呼气中发生的吞咽可能是与无效努力具有相似的特征集合的扰动。 Swallowing occurs breath may be disturbed and ineffective efforts have similar feature set. 然而,这可被区别为气道的暂时闭合以及由此的呼吸暂停或零气流阶段。 However, this distinction can be temporarily closed airway apneas, and thus the gas flow or zero phase. 预计吞咽呼吸暂停的持续时间为至少500毫秒。 Expected duration swallowing apnea is at least 500 milliseconds. 如果这个检验结果是TRUE, 状态变量用potentialswallow表示且吞咽呼吸暂停计时Tsa随取样时间增大。 If the test result is TRUE, the state variable is represented by potentialswallow and swallow apnea timer Tsa with sampling time increases.

[0107] 直至检测到显著倾斜,引入的气流取样在这组循环中被处理,首先识别出局部极大值并启动无效努力计时,然后识别吞咽发生的可能性,如果发生吞咽,启动吞咽呼吸暂停计时。 [0107] until a significant inclination detected, the incoming gas stream to be treated in this sampling cycle set, first identified local maxima and boot ineffective efforts timing, and then identifies the possibility of swallowing occurs, occurs if swallowing, swallowing start apnea timing. 两个计时在每次重复均增加与取样时间相等的量。 In each iteration were increased amount equal to two times the sampling timing.

[0108] 通过递减气流变化率的极大值的出现⑴” =0)识别显著倾斜[7],因此它的值大于中间负值、非零阈值α,例如但不限于标准差的百分比(如33% ),定义为: [0108] By decreasing the occurrence ⑴ maximum airflow rate of change "= 0) to identify the significant inclination [7], it is greater than the value of the intermediate negative, non-zero threshold value [alpha], e.g., but not limited to a percentage of the standard deviation (e.g. 33%), is defined as:

[0109] [0109]

Figure CN101043913BD00121

[0110] η是随引入的气流渐进变化的、在长期限或循环缓冲器中的样本数。 [0110] η stream is introduced with a gradual change in the long term or the number of samples in the circular buffer.

[0111] 为了表明对这个显著倾斜特征的检测,状态变量用dec-detected表示[8]。 [0111] To demonstrate the detection of the significant features of the inclined, state variables [8] with dec-detected.

[0112] 为了对倾斜是否是吞咽的结果进行分类,检查吞咽呼吸暂停计时是否大于最小预计吞咽时间500毫秒[9],如果大于,重置包括全部状态变量和计时的特征检测过程。 If [0112] In order to tilt is swallowed classification results, swallowing apnea timer check greater than the minimum expected time of 500 ms swallowing [9], if it exceeds, reset the feature detection process comprising all the state variables and timing.

[0113] 如果检测到倾斜不是吞咽的结果,通过一次导数中增大的零交叉的出现确定下一个局部极小值: [0113] If the detected tilt is not a result of swallowing, the derivative is increased by one occurrence of the next zero crossing of the local minimum values ​​determined:

[0114] Q,i > 0 且Q,η < 0, [0114] Q, i> 0 and Q, η <0,

[0115] 基于检测到的局部极小值,倾斜的整个持续时间和患者努力的衰减由计时值Tie 给出。 [0115] Based on the detected local minima, the entire duration of the decay and patient effort by the count value of the inclination Tie given. 对于大于500毫秒的值,特征集合被认为作为无效努力难以实行并被忽略[11]。 For values ​​greater than 500 ms, as the feature set is considered invalid and is ignored efforts unfeasible [11].

[0116] 气流的局部极大值被存储为变量%,且倾斜幅度被定义[12]为: [0116] airflow local maximum value is stored as a variable%, and the amplitude is defined as the inclination [12] is:

[0118] 倾斜幅度用于对特征集合按照其生理原因进行分类。 [0118] recline feature set for classification according to their physical reasons. 除了无效努力,显著扰动最通常的生理原因以及呼气过程中出现的更精确的倾斜是分泌、咳嗽和心原性振动(CGO)。 In addition to the efforts invalid, a significant disturbance of the physiological causes most common and more accurate tilt is occurred during exhalation secretion, cough, and cardiogenic oscillation (CGO).

[0119] 可通过高分辨率气流信号如呼气开始后即刻发生的高频捻发音观察到患者的分泌。 [0119] secretion of the patient can be observed by high resolution pronunciation expiratory airflow signal starts immediately after the occurrence of such a high frequency twisted. 对信号进行向下采样或噪音过滤可消除这种捻发音的存在,而不会消除无效努力中的高频成分。 Downsampling the signal or noise filter to eliminate the presence of such crepitus, but does not eliminate the high frequency components ineffective effort. 根据本实施例中的滤波技术,分泌的影响较小或没有影响。 According to the present embodiment, filtering techniques, secreted less or no effect.

[0120] 咳嗽是胸腔的突发的、痉挛性收缩,导致气体从肺部猛烈地释放。 [0120] sudden cough, spasmodic contraction of the chest, resulting in the release of gas from the lungs violently. 在呼气中,气流可达到大于200L/min,远远超过呼出气流的峰值。 During exhalation, the airflow can achieve greater than 200L / min, far more than the peak expiratory flow. 这些阈值用于测试倾斜幅度[13]。 These thresholds are used to test the amplitude of inclination [13].

[0121] 在高阻力和低肺顺应性的阻塞性患者中,CGO如果不是完全不能,也是不能很好地传送到嘴。 [0121] In patients with obstructive lung compliance low and the high resistance of, if not completely CGO not, is not well transferred to the mouth. 它们的存在可能被向下采样或噪音过滤减弱,或用如ECG或脉冲体积描记器的门控心肌信号的自适应滤波技术进行抑制。 Their presence could be reduced down sampled or filtered noise, or inhibiting such as ECG or pulse plethysmograph gated myocardial signal adaptive filtering techniques. [0122] 在CGO出现在气流信号中且没有被抑制的情况下,可基于它们较小的峰-谷(peak-trough)或倾斜幅度,将其与无效努力区分。 [0122] In CGO present in the gas stream and is not a case where the signal is suppressed, can be based on their minor peak - trough (peak-trough), or recline, which strive to distinguish invalid. 这个实施例中采用的阈值是4L/ min[14]。 The threshold employed in this embodiment is 4L / min [14].

[0123] 如果倾斜幅度在总限制之内,则认为发生了无效努力。 [0123] If the magnitude of the tilt in the total limits, it is considered that invalid efforts.

[0124] 在检测到无效努力之后和检测到对应于连续无效努力的新的局部极大值之前,执行了一个等待时间段[16]。 [0124] Before and after the detection of an invalid efforts consecutive invalid detected corresponding to the new local maximum effort, implementation of a waiting period [16]. 这基于吸气尝试的预计最小神经时间(neural time),即努力是500毫秒。 This is based on the estimated minimum suction try to time the nerve (neural time), that is, efforts are 500 milliseconds.

[0125] 图8示出了本发明实施例的输出。 [0125] FIG. 8 shows the output of an embodiment of the present invention. 与气流信号中的显著扰动相匹配的两个未被支持的吸气努力是明显的,[1]和[2],且这些随后及时地被算法识别和记录。 Two unsupported inspiratory effort and airflow signal is significantly perturbed match is obvious, [1] and [2], and these algorithms are then promptly identified and recorded.

[0126] 这些实施例是本发明的可行性的范例,且这些说明不应被作为限制。 [0126] These exemplary embodiments are feasible embodiments of the present invention, and these descriptions are not to be construed as limiting.

[0127] 本发明的另一方面涉及使用无效努力的指数估算真正的患者呼吸率。 [0127] Another aspect of the present invention relates to the use of ineffective efforts to estimate the true index of the patient's breathing rate. 在一种形式中,这通过将如上述检测到的无效努力的数量与一定时间段内呼吸机供给的呼吸的数量相加来完成。 In one form, this is done by the number of a certain time period the number of valid respiratory ventilator will supply effort detected as described above is added.

[0128] 本发明的又一方面涉及改进患者-呼吸机对抗。 [0128] In yet another aspect of the present invention is directed to an improved patient - ventilator confrontation. 在周期性间隔之内或用于一组呼吸循环的算法输出的累加和(指数统计的)可用作治疗效果的指示。 And accumulating (statistical index) indicating at periodic intervals, or the algorithm for outputting a set of the respiratory cycle can be used as a therapeutic effect. 在大量未觉察的患者状况(高PEEPi,急性发作)的结果的触发,或不正确的呼吸机设置的情况下,度量可促进报警以使临床医生采取响应动作(用药或PEEP/压力支持/潮气量供给调整),并参照之前的指数统计测量该响应动作的有效性。 In the case of triggering the results of a large number are not aware of the patient's condition (high PEEPi, acute onset) or incorrect ventilator settings, measurement can facilitate the alarm in order to enable the clinician to take responsive action (medication or PEEP / pressure support / moisture statistical indices measured before supply amount adjustment), and with reference to the validity of the response action.

[0129] 扩展这个概念,对指数统计的响应动作,即对呼吸机设置PEEP/压力支持/潮气量供给的调整在呼吸机本身中可实现自动化。 [0129] extended this concept, in response to operation of the statistical index, i.e. PEEP pressure support provided to adjust / / tidal volume supplied to the ventilator in the ventilator itself can be automated. 此外,这些调整的效应的连续评估以及治疗的伺服调节将成为可能。 In addition, the effects of these adjustments continuous servo adjustment evaluation and treatment will be possible.

[0130] 虽然结合目前被认为是最实际和最优选的实施例对本发明进行了说明,应该理解的是,本发明不应局限于所公开的实施例,相反地,旨在覆盖在本发明的精神和范围内的多种改进和等同设置。 [0130] Although binding is presently considered to be the most practical and preferred embodiments of the present invention have been described, it should be understood that the present invention should not be limited to the disclosed embodiments, on the contrary, it is intended to cover in the present invention within the spirit and scope of the various modifications and equivalent arrangements. 同样地,上述多种实施例可与其他实施例结合实施,例如,一个实施例的某些方面可与另一个实施例的某些方面相结合以实现又一个实施例。 Similarly, the above-described various embodiments can be implemented in conjunction with other embodiments, e.g., some aspect of an embodiment of certain aspects of the embodiments may be combined with another embodiment to realize yet another embodiment.

[0131] 例如,代替被监测的气流信号,在患者气道入口监测压力信号。 [0131] For example, instead of the air flow signal is monitored, the patient monitoring airway pressure signal inlet. 可应用于压力信号的一种形式的特征集合相反地与上述有关气流的特征集合相关。 Pressure signal may be applied to a form of opposite sets of features associated with a set of features related to the stream. 例如,代替检测倾斜度, 监测压力信号在局部极小值后明显增加。 For example, instead of detecting an inclination, a significant increase in the pressure signal is monitored after a local minimum.

[0132] 此外,尽管本发明对患COPD的患者具有特殊应用,应该理解的是,患其它疾病(例如充血性心力衰竭、糖尿病、病态肥胖、中风、胃绕道(barriatric)手术等)的患者也可从上述技术中获益。 [0132] Further, although the present invention has particular application to a patient suffering from COPD, it is understood that the risk of other diseases (e.g. congestive heart failure, diabetes, morbid obesity, stroke, gastric bypass (barriatric) surgery) patients also You may benefit from the techniques described above.
